Charley Maplewood is about to reach a milestone: he’s about to turn ten – the big one-oh! He has never been one for parties—that would require friends, which he doesn’t have. Well, unless you count his monster friends, but they’re only imaginary. Charley’s still adjusting to his parents’ divorce and his move to a completely new school. Now that he’s turning ten he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a “House of Horrors” theme. Of course things don’t work out as he plans. Will Charley be able to pull it together before the big one-oh… becomes the big OH-NO!?
